Dismay by the Bay

Tim Wakefield made his 400th start for the Red Sox in the series opener against the Giants at AT&T Park. Although he didn’t get the win, that he lasted seven innings was a victory given the state of the team’s bullpen.

This game was an offensive feast compared to Diamondback pitcher Edwin Jackson’s no-hitter against the Rays that was won 1-0. Kevin Youkilis lofted a four-bagger with Marco Scutaro and Daniel Nava on base in the first. The Giants tied the game in the bottom of the second and took the lead on Juan Uribe’s third-inning home run.

Former Red Sox second baseman Freddy Sanchez notched a sacrifice fly for an insurance run in the eighth. That run proved the difference in the top of the ninth.

Victor Martinez drove in Youkilis, who stood at third with a two-out triple. Adrian Beltre singled and Bill Hall walked to load the bases for Darnell McDonald. McDonald grounded into the final out, but losing the first game of the series wasn’t the biggest loss.

The United States men’s soccer team lost to Ghana in the Round of 16, breaking American hearts. Dustin Pedroia fouled a ball off his left foot in the third inning, fracturing his navicular bone.
